55 Health Workers In Grand Gedeh Train In Hazard Management 

By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, April 30 2015(LINA) – Fifty-five Frontline Health Workers (FHW) in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County have been trained to combat common diseases in hard-to-reach areas across the county under the TIYATIEN Health Program.

Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency in Zwedru Thursday, TIYATIEN Project Manager Ben Grant said the health workers are currently out on the field, especially in Konobo Statutory District, where they are providing home-based healthcare for citizens.

Konobo is one district in Grand Gedeh County which comprises some of the county’s remotest and hard-to-reach areas.

Grant further said the training has reduced hardships previously encountered by locals who had to cover long distances to get to the nearest health center in Ziah’s Town for treatment.

He, however, noted that their work is confined to 10 common diseases, including malaria, fever and cough.

The TIYATIEN Health Project Manager told LINA that though all of the Frontline Health Workers were selected by their respective towns and villages in the district, they are receiving cash and other support to make them efficient and effective in the discharge of their duties.

According to Grant, patients including children, pregnant women and breast-feeding mothers are receiving treatment free-of-charge under the program.

TIYATIEN Health, which in the Krahn language means “Justice in health,” was established by citizens of Grand Gedeh residing in the Diaspora in 2007 to help ease health problems in remote areas in the county, the Southeast and Liberia at large.
